Last year I decided that I wanted to go on a hike with my weight watchers group. We went to a trail that wasn't extremely difficult called the wind cave trail, at usery park path. The thought of going on this hike both excited me and scared me at the same time. I couldn't wait to test my body after the 7 months on weight watchers, and I didn't know how I would feel if I couldn't make it all the way to the top. Having my wife, and new friends with me helped me to just relax and accept my abilities and strengths that I had then. I however did not make it all the way to the top, but where I stopped my friends and I named it "Victory Rock". I knew that this was indeed a victory for me because I did everything to get to that spot. I did not feel bad that I didn't get all the way to the top, I rejoyced in my ability to get to this "Victory Rock", and Sudenly it became my rock. Here are some of the pics from that excution. Unfortunately my camera died before I got to "Victory Rock", so I don't have a picture of that.
This is of my wife and I at the beginning of the tail.
Some friends and I taking a rest.
Carly and I about halfway of the mountain, and also the last picture before the camera died.
Knowing that I did not make it this time I knew that I would want to do this again, I knew that as my body got stronger I would want to make it to the top, and rejoice there. So about a month ago I got invited from my work to go do this Hike again. This time I made a goal to get to "Victory Rock" and stand on it, knowing that I would make it further this time. Well thats exactly what happend I got to "Victory Rock" and I wasn't even that tired. I cantinued to push forward, and I did it, I made it all the way to the top, and here is a picture to show that I was there.
